Julie Kagawa
“I think our last kiss was meant to be quick and chaste, but after the first touch of his lips fire leaped up and roared through my belly. My fingers yanked him close, digging into his back, and his arms crushed me to him as if wanting to meld us together. I knotted my fingers in his hair and bit down on his bottom lip, making him groan. His lips parted, and my tongue swept in to dance with his. There was nothing sweet or gentle in our last kiss; it was filled with sorrow and desperation, of the bitter knowledge that we could've had something perfect, but it just wasn't meant to be.”
Julie Kagawa, The Iron Daughter

Peter Kreeft

Peter Kreeft, Jesus-Shock

Marie Rutkoski
“She remembered how her heart, so tight, like a scroll, had opened when Arin kissed her.
It had unfurled.
If her heart were truly a scroll, she could burn it.
It would become a tunnel of flame, a handful of ash.
The secrets she had written inside herself would be gone. No one would know”
Marie Rutkoski, The Winner's Curse

Terry Pratchett
“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.”
Terry Pratchett, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch

Claudy Conn

Ilona Andrews
“What is the connection between you and our handsome host? Aunt B asked.

Blackberries taste much worse when they try to come back up your throat. "Uhhh..."

"Uhhh is not an answer," Keira informed me.

Andre must not have told her about Hugh, and I had no desire to explain who my dad was. "We never met but we were trained by the same person. Now he works for a very powerful man who will kill me if he finds me."

"Why?" Keira asked.

"It's a family thing."

"That explains the attraction," Aunt B said.


"You're that thing he can't have. It's called forbidden fruit."

"I'm not his fruit!"

"He thinks you are. The word you're looking for is "smitten," my dear." Aunt B smiled. "I'm sure the way Megobari looked at you made Curran positively giddy.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Rises

Orson Scott Card
“She remembered the story from her childhood, about Adam and Eve in the garden, and the talking snake. Even as a little girl she had said - to the consternation of her family - What kind of idiot was Eve, to believe a snake? But now she understood, for she had heard the voice of the snake and had watched as a wise and powerful man had fallen under its spell.
Eat the fruit and you can have the desires of your heart. It's not evil, it's noble and good. You'll be praised for it.
And it's delicious.”
Orson Scott Card, Shadow of the Hegemon

Victor Hugo
“He had, they said, tasted in succession all the apples of the tree of knowledge, and, whether from hunger or disgust, had ended by tasting the forbidden fruit.”
Victor Hugo, The Hunchback of Notre-Dame

Allan Dare Pearce

Kassandra Cross
“She had assumed they would see each other every day but she hadn’t really thought about the implications of having an affair with a married man. It wasn’t going to be a normal relationship.”
Kassandra Cross, Carrie's First Time: Taboo Older Man Younger Woman First Time Erotic Romance

C.S. Lewis
“I am not sure that the best way to make a boy love the English poets might not be forbid him to read them and then make sure that he had plenty of opportunities to disobey you.”
C.S. Lewis, On Stories: And Other Essays on Literature

Alan Hollinghurst
“Delight is délice, délit is a misdemeanour'
'Well, it's bloody close...'
'Well, they often are....”

Kassandra Cross
“You do bad things to me, Carrie,” he grinned, “Very bad things.”
Kassandra Cross, Carrie's First Time: Taboo Older Man Younger Woman First Time Erotic Romance

“Alas! the forbidden fruits were eaten,
And thereby the warm life of reason congealed.
A grain of wheat eclipsed the sun of Adam,
Like as the Dragon's tail dulls the brightness of the moon.”
Rumi Masnavi-I Ma'navi

Kate Meader
“An inappropriate attraction to your friend’s fiancé was grounds for disbarment from the Woman Club. Neither did it make a lick of sense. He was uncouth, uneducated, uncivilized. All of their conversations back then had been unholy bicker fests where they charged from the opposite ends of the spectrum, determined not to meet in the middle but to rip pieces out of each other on the drive by.”
Kate Meader, Even the Score

Mallika Nawal
“The perfect boyfriend. Evolutionary psychologists often opine that bad boys are the ultimate alpha males—powerful, potent, lethal. These predators represent the forbidden fruit! Ergo that makes them the ultimate taboo, which makes them the ultimate aphrodisiac.”
Mallika Nawal

“It’s hard to imagine what changed after that first bite of forbidden fruit, but it must have been a little like the power going out in the dead of winter. The warm light of God’s perfect presence vanished and chill dread must have swollen inside them.”
Jacquelle Crowe

Oliver Markus Malloy
“In Europe, nobody will bleep you, if you want to say a "bad" word on TV. The idea that some self-righteous little old lady at the FCC gets to tell other people which words they may or may not use, seems like a pretty strange concept in the rest of the civilized world.

Media censorship is a prohibition of words and pictures. The War on Drugs is a complete failure, and so is the American War on Words. When you forbid a word, you give it power. Self-proclaimed rebels will use words like shit or fuck, simply to shock and sound cool.”
Oliver Markus Malloy, Bad Choices Make Good Stories - Going to New York
